Today marks my first two years as a Patch editor—my second Patchiversary, if you will.
Of course, we didn't launch Perry Hall Patch on my first day (we saved that for ). June 21 was a sunny Monday, and I took a train to Patch's New York headquarters. I attended meetings, asked a lot of questions and met my first co-worker ( of Towson Patch). I wondered what I had gotten myself into.
I knew I wanted to create something worth reading, something that community members would invite into their everyday lives—but I also knew it would take a lot of work and a lot of help from my neighbors.
That's where Perry Hall came in.
Over the past two years, I have been welcomed and served by this community in ways that I never anticipated.
You have brought me into your homes, your schools, your businesses and your churches. You have talked to me at times of great pain and loss, as well as times of celebration. You have shown me patience and understanding and appreciation. You've read and commented on and shared the stories of our community.
I just can't thank you enough for it. I feel so fortunate.
Looking forward, Patch has so much more room for growth. There are still so many stories to tell and readers to reach.
Please, continue to tell your friends and family about Patch and the impact it has on your life. Get our daily newsletter, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, write a blog post, email a news tip, write a comment and add an event or announcement. The site is all about you.
Thank you again, Perry Hall, for a great two years!
